Which motherboard?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok Im looking for a new mobo Socket 775, Ive found these ones but not sure which one to pick. Im looking for a second opinion, or maybe even a suggestion of another motherboard. These are all MiniATX because thats the one that can fit in my case:

I dont mind DDR but Id perfer DDR2 and PCI-Express is a must because im getting a pci-e vid card.

I personally would go with the last one because its got the 945g chipset (the most up to date from your selections) and it accomodates a 1066 fsb so you have some room for improvement on down the line when those cpu prices come down under a grand...

One of the drawbacks i can see is it doesnt appear to support raid and you'll have to consider whether or not thats important for you...
Also there is no mention of NCQ capability which is something i will be considering on my next mobo as some reviews i've read show it can be a nice improvement to sata hd's and possibly bring them up to par with scsi

definately my pick of those four... This is purely a "spec" suggestion and i dont know anything about the performance or compatability of those boards so thats another thing to research / consider.

May wanna hold off until someone in the micro atx market gives an opinion. Its probable there are better boards out there for around the same price... I dont know of any cuz im not lookin for em
